Court Trashes Junk Health Insurance Policies

Federal Court Nixes Noxious Junk Health Insurance Policies

A Federal Judge ruled that the Trump Administration’s so-called “Association Health Plans” –health insurance policies that do not meet minimum standards required by the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) — are “clearly an end-run around the ACA.”

“Indeed, as the President directed, and the Secretary of Labor confirmed, the Final Rule was designed to expand access to AHPs to avoid the most stringent requirements of the ACA.”


“‘Clearly an end-run’: Federal judge rejects Trump’s health-care plan to go around Obamacare,” Timothy Bella, Washington Post

“Trump administration suffers another Obamacare blow in court,” Paul Demko, Politico
